One has to wonder if this is propaganda play to appeal to the people of Boliva or if this could have turned into another Mumbai Hotel attacks if the police had not intervened.

Certainly, I wouldn't put it past any "Western" nation to attempt an assassination on Morales.

I guess we'll have to read the information as it comes to see if indeed, this was a thwarted 'terrorist' attack or possibly just played up propaganda to appeal to his countrymen ... not unlike some antics put on by rulers of other countries to inspire patriotism for their President.

I wonder if we'll see increased 'chatter' from the White house/ EU regarding this incident.

Maybe they slipped up and caused 2 of their guys to get caught. The next few days could be very interesting, to say the least.

i see the 2 arrested where from ireland..i wonder if sinn fien will claim they are innocent and only there for peaceful matters..much like the 3 ira man arrested in Columbia ( 2 convicted bombers )who promptly disappear when they got bail and are living openly back in Ireland even thou there's an international warrant out on them..
